The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Delois Wattles
The Science of Mind by Ernest S. Holmes
From the Foreword: 'In presenting these lessons on Mental Science, I do not claim to have discovered any new Truth. The Truth has been known in every age by a few; but the great mass of people has never even dreamed that we live in a mental and spiritual world. To-day, however, there is a great inquiry into the deeper meaning of life because the race has reached a state of unfoldment where a broader scope is possible. These lessons are an attempt to put into the spoken word and into print some of those great truths known to the enlightened of all ages.'
The Science of Real-Estate and Mortgage Investment by Homer Reed
This little volume is the result of being called upon, a few years since, to read a paper before the Kansas City Real Estate and Stock Exchange upon the subject "Real Estate Considered as Investment and Income Property.” That first sog. gested to me to put my ideas on real estate investment in an orderly arrangement. It then occurred to me that an outline of the general principles and considerations which should control such investments would interest a large number of people. Because I have put my thoughts in book form, I do not arrogate to myself any superior knowledge upon the subject as compared with hundreds of other experienced business men in the West who have had largely to do with real estate and real-estate securities. Many of these men could have written better and would also, perhaps, have made fewer errors in their observations of land and its improvements considered as a commodity.
The Science Of Religion by Paramahansa Yogananda
Religion or faith in fundamental principles is the foundation upon which the edifice of reasoning or science is built upon. While it is a religion that binds us into courses of action consistent with those fundamental principles, it is a science that enables us to stay clear of inconsistent systems of guiding principles and to practically attain the goals posited by our principles. The Science of Religion by Paramahansa Yogananda arrives by analysis at inner happiness or bliss as the goal that binds all men.

The Sealed Valley by Hulbert Footner
One of the fairest paintings of Nature was at that point among the mountains of the Canadian province of Cariboo where the Campbell River takes the Boardman to its bosom and swings south on its pilgrimage to the Pacific. Like all of Nature's more dramatic compositions, by reason of its very effectiveness, it was predestined to be smudged by a town, and the collection of shacks and tents known as Fort Edward was already begun. It was conceded that Fort Edward was bound to be a great city when the new transcontinental passed through. To be sure, railhead was still beyond the mountains, a matter of two or three years' construction, but the noise of the town's greatness-to-be had been industriously drummed up by real-estate operators outside, and many optimists had struggled up the three hundred miles of the Campbell Valley from the existing railway to be on hand in plenty of time.
The Search After Happiness by Charlotte Brontë
The Seats of the Mighty, Complete by Gilbert Parker
The Second Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
The Second Part of King Henry IV by William Shakespeare
Upon my tongues continual slanders ride, The which in every language I pronounce, Stuffing the ears of men with false reports. I speak of peace while covert emnity, Under the smile of safety, wounds the world; and who but Rumour, who but only I, Make fearful musters and prepar'd defence, Whiles the big year, swoln with some other grief, Is thought with child by the stern tyrant war, and no such matter? Rumour is a pipe Blown by surmises, jealousies, conjectures, and of so easy and so plain a stop.
The Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow by Jerome K. Jerome
The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie
The Secret Agent: A Simple Tale by Joseph Conrad
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
When Mary Lennox was sent to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her uncle everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen. It was true, too. She had a little thin face and a little thin body, thin light hair and a sour expression. Her hair was yellow, and her face was yellow because she had been born in India and had always been ill in one way or another. Her father had held a position under the English Government and had always been busy and ill himself, and her mother had been a great beauty who cared only to go to parties and amuse herself with gay people. She had not wanted a little girl at all, and when Mary was born she handed her over to the care of an Ayah, who was made to understand that if she wished to please the Mem Sahib she must keep the child out of sight as much as possible. So when she was a sickly, fretful, ugly little baby she was kept out of the way, and when she became a sickly, fretful, toddling thing she was kept out of the way also. She never remembered seeing familiarly anything but the dark faces of her Ayah and the other native servants, and as they always obeyed her and gave her her own way in everything, because the Mem Sahib would be angry if she was disturbed by her crying, by the time she was six years old she was as tyrannical and selfish a little pig as ever lived. The young English governess who came to teach her to read and write disliked her so much that she gave up her place in three months, and when other governesses came to try to fill it they always went away in a shorter time than the first one. So if Mary had not chosen to really want to know how to read books she would never have learned her letters at all.
The Secret House by Edgar Wallace
The Secret of Charlotte Brontë by Frederika Macdonald
The Secret of the Ages by Robert Collier
What makes a New Thought classic? Obviously most of these books are delivering the exact same message. Collier here demonstrates a combination of factors which seems to win over readers: a folksy style, lots of inspirational quotes, particularly from the Bible, and, most of all, constant repetition of the theme that you, too, can tap the power of the Infinite, and get healthy and rich just by instructing your unconscious mind to do so.
The Secret of the Sundial by Mildred A. Wirt
On a certain evening in early September—Friday the thirteenth—to be exact, a stranger in Claymore, Michigan, might have been startled to behold two figures, grotesque in long white sheets which draped them from head to foot, scurrying along an alley leading to Summit Street. It was an appropriate night for ghosts to be abroad. The moon was in the dark and the wind whistled weirdly through the trees.

The Secret of Wyvern Towers by T. W. Speight
On a certain sunny May morning, about forty years ago, the owner of Wyvern Towers stepped into a lovely glade of Barras Wood, which was a portion of his extensive property. Felix Drelincourt was a man who stood a little over six feet in height. His black, silky hair had a careless wave in it, and his thin mustache, with its up curled tips, was the cause of his often being taken for a foreigner. But his eyes were the most striking feature of a striking personality. They were black, and of an extraordinarily piercing quality, with a sort of veiled, somber glow in them at times, as it might be the glow thrown out from between the bars of some hidden furnace, the fire in which was eating its heart away in the flame of its own burning unrest. It was not easy to judge his age, but one might put it down as being somewhere between eight and twenty and four or five and thirty. This morning he was dressed in a velveteen shooting jacket, with cord breeches and leggings, and was wearing a low crowned felt hat.

The story takes place on a sailing ship in the Gulf of Siam (now the Gulf of Thailand), at the start of a voyage with cargo for Britain. The narrator is the ship's young captain, whose name is never given. He is unfamiliar with both his ship and his crew, having joined the ship only a fortnight earlier, and unsure of his ability to exert his authority over the officers and crew who have been together for some time. He makes the point several times that he is the "stranger" on board.
The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P. Hall
NUMEROUS volumes have been written as commentaries upon the secret systems of philosophy existing in the ancient world, but the ageless truths of life, like many of the earth's greatest thinkers, have usually been clothed in shabby garments. The present work is an attempt to supply a tome worthy of those seers and sages whose thoughts are the substance of its pages. To bring about this coalescence of Beauty and Truth has proved most costly, but I believe that the result will produce an effect upon the mind of the reader which will more than justify the expenditure.
The Secret Tomb by Maurice le Blanc
Under a sky heavy with stars and faintly brighter for a low-hanging sickle moon, the gipsy caravan slept on the turf by the roadside, its shutters closed, its shafts stretched out like arms. In the shadow of the ditch nearby a stertorous horse was snoring. Far away, above the black crest of the hills, a bright streak of sky announced the coming of the dawn. A church clock struck four. Here and there a bird awoke and began to sing. The air was soft and warm. Abruptly, from the interior of the caravan, a woman's voice cried: "Saint-Quentin! Saint-Quentin!" A head was thrust out of the little window which looked out over the box under the projecting roof. "A nice thing this! I thought as much! The rascal has decamped in the night. The little beast! Nice discipline this is!" Other voices joined in the grumbling. Two or three minutes passed, then the door in the back of the caravan opened and a shadowy figure descended the five steps of the ladder while two tousled heads appeared at the side window.
The Seeds of Creation by Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’
The collection of poems in The Seeds of Creation by legendary poet Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ is symbol of his inexhaustible but ever-evolving thinking personality and hence, persuasively inspired by ‘consciousness of creation’. It is virtually a vibrant bouquet of iridescent life experiences of lively and creative thoughts of the heart swinging from the eternal swing of joy, hope, despair, truth, and untruth by the poet which will surely enchant the readers. The poems meet all the criteria of literature. ‘Nishank’ is a creator fully devoted to sublime thinking and human sensibilities and is in favour of higher values of society. In this collection too, this same sublime musings of the poet have resurfaced. The Seeds of Creation is a readable compilation of popular poems revealing the values inherent in nature, human relations, and life. In the world The poorest And the weak Is the one Who from within Is weak Besides who lacks Control over the self. *** Never stop for a moment Sometimes flows like the ocean Sometimes swarms like the storm Suffers joy and sorrows, The relationships of the world in this Bind like an unbreakable bond. *** Fill not the heart with poison Leave the bitterness of speech, Break the chains of selfishness In a moment. *** Look! How humble is it! While bearing fruits It bent Until quietly fuses With the earth where it stands. That’s why, it’s said– Talented person akin to a fructuous tree Always connects with life, Idiot like a stub Sans fruit and inflorescence Is irrelevantly obdurate. —from this collection
The Seven Follies of Science [2nd ed.] by John Phin
"In the following pages I have endeavored to give a simple account of problems which have occupied the attention of the human mind ever since the dawn of civilization, and which can never lose their interest until time shall be no more. While to most persons these subjects will have but an historical interest, yet even from this point of view they are of more value than the history of empires, for they are the intellectual battlefields upon which much of our progress in science has been won. To a few, however, some of them may be of actual practical importance, for although the schoolmaster has been abroad for these many years, it is an unfortunate fact that the circle-squarer and the perpetual-motion-seeker have not ceased out of the land." -Preface
